Letter J is a joke; you’ve been duly warned.
A to Z entries: My post for each letter of the alphabet will be anecdotes or musings based on an element from the previous letter’s post. Names always changed, events always real.

A note about missing posts: If you’re reading the alphabet posts in order and discover missing letters, it likely means I’m revising and incorporating them into bigger pieces for other sites. Over the years, this blog has served my writing as a developmental and exercise space.
Remember yesterday’s post, where I talked of the importance of a balanced life? Well, I listened to myself and dedicated today to cobwebs both literal and figurative. So, no time for a long, thought-out post.
But here still is the letter J, dutifully delivered, in a post that’s both a joke and contains a joke. It’s not often you get to dispatch a double-meaning without planning. Especially with a word that begins with “J.” There’s a reason why there’s only one letter J in Scrabble…
A word about jokes. I can never remember them. It’s like a bizarre brain disorder. I can laugh at a joke until my abs hurt, but I will not retain it. I may remember a set up or a punchline, but never the two together. I’ve retained more algebra rules than whole jokes, and that’s with my math being at the level of a squirrel.
Here’s the one and only exception:
